Why is the liberal media ignoring the Hollywood child rape scandals?

Hollywood loves to sexualize children.

When the Roman Catholic church had it's child rape scandals we heard about every detail constantly for years. With good reason, they should have been reported. It was a shameful chapter in the history of the church that I love. Shame on the pedophile priests, they deserve life in prison and eternal damnation in the next life.

When Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was caught raping boys we heard about it in detail for weeks. With good reason. Jerry Sandusky (if guilty) deserves life in prison and eternal damnation in the next life.

But when a Hollywood scum bag is involved in child rape, we don't hear anything from the liberal media except a defense of the child rapist. Take for example Hollywood director Roman Polanski who was CONVICTED of drugging and anally raping a 13 year old girl as she cried and begged him to stop. Roman Polanski was 43 at the time. He fled the USA to avoid being placed in prison and has lived his life in freedom and wealth and still making movies to this day. What was the response from the liberal media? They defended him!

Now we have an enormous Hollywood child rape scandal and what is the liberal media doing? Ignoring it:

"If a spate of recent allegations proves true, Hollywood may have a hideous epidemic on its hands. The past two weeks have brought three separate reports of alleged child sexual abuse in the entertainment industry.

Martin Weiss, a 47-year-old Hollywood manager who represented child actors, was charged in Los Angeles on Dec. 1 with sexually abusing a former client. His accuser, who was under 12 years old during the time of the alleged abuse, reported to authorities that Weiss told him “what they were doing was common practice in the entertainment industry.” Weiss has pleaded not guilty.

On Nov. 21, Fernando Rivas, 59, an award-winning composer for “Sesame Street,” was arraigned on charges of coercing a child “to engage in sexually explicit conduct” in South Carolina. The Juilliard-trained composer was also charged with production and distribution of child pornography.

Registered sex offender Jason James Murphy, 35, worked as a casting agent in Hollywood for years before his past kidnapping and sexual abuse of a boy was revealed by the Los Angeles Times on Nov. 17. Murphy’s credits include placing young actors in kid-friendly fare like “Bad News Bears,” “The School of Rock,” “Cheaper by the Dozen 2” and the forthcoming “Three Stooges.

Corey Feldman [made] eye-opening remarks in August to ABC’s “Primetime Nightline” that “the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem for children in this industry … It’s the big secret.”

Alison Arngrim, the veteran Hollywood actress best known for her role decades ago as Nellie on “Little House on the Prairie,” has said, “This (the abuse of children) has been going on for a very long time.

“If a child actor is being sexually abused by someone on the show, is the family, agents or managers – the people who are getting money out of this – going to say, ‘OK, let’s press charges’? No, because it’s going to bring the whole show to a grinding halt, and stop all the checks,” says Arngrim. “So, the pressure is there not to say anything.”

    I think they ignore it not because of their heart, but because of their private parts.

    JK, you called is correctly.
  • firelooker 2011/12/13 15:57:18
    Money is the answer as tro why the lib media ignores hollywood pedophilia. Plus they are so enamored with Hollywood they don't want to admit there's a problem.

    They think that the Hollywood crowd is just toooo important and far above we mere mortals and, they support the democrats with very real bucks and lots of face time.
  • Wayne 2011/12/13 15:36:03
    All the while these sick bastards pretend to be intellectual superiors to regular folks, using their fame to promote the liberal agenda. I guess we are just to stupid to understand the best they have ever done is to pretend to be some they are not! They live in a world of make believe. Personally I would not walk across the street to see any of them in person but I do like a good movie.
  • apachehellfire65 2011/12/13 15:34:19
    the same reason everyone including the victims are. NOBODY WANT TO ROCK THE MONEY BOAT! plus what is the point of pursuing something when the victims wont even come forward?
  • Lanikai apacheh... 2011/12/13 18:03:04
    Well, look what they do to conservatives in Hollywood, now imagine if you are the person that tattles on a big wig for porking a little kid.

    And let's look at Roman Polanski, he RAPED a 13 year old girl, after he got her drunk and hollywood is STILL howling about his being banned from the USA for as long as he was.

    So it MUST be part of their culture.
  • apacheh... Lanikai 2011/12/13 18:16:44
    precisely! this will go on as long as there are people and parents that will do anything for fame!
  • RastaFan 2011/12/13 15:34:04 (edited)
    Hollywood is a protected class in a number of areas, Their free market capitalism isn't questioned. Their oppulent wealth doesn't earn them a spot in the 1% and they don't seem to have been 'occupied'. Their rampant drug abuses are glamourized as much as criticized.

    As long as Hollywood promotes Liberalism in the industry.

    Un-wanted children are an indulgent play thing for rich/powerful people with black murderous hearts. A small group of senators go on a trip to a 3rd world place for a meeting and on the way home they torture and kill a purchased orphaned child/s. If you can't even humor the idea this happens... thank god....

    That was an example... If I knew about a real one of these I would be the victim or a multimillionaire with a child murder fetish. I happen to be neither.

    that's awful and sick...Hollywood sex offensive should be in prison....
  • GINGERBREAD 2011/12/13 15:12:20
    The answer is very simple. "BECAUSE THEY CAN". Who's going to turn them in? The producers? The director? The parents? If anyone one of them do turn in the pedophiles, who is going to wright the checks? Hmm, let's see, if I turn this creep in, will the checks stop coming in? The answer, YEP. So better not make waves. This includes the child. The child is told that it's part of the job. As for why the LAMESTREAM MEDIA not getting on this? Same reason, the checks will stop coming. The last time there was a sex scandal in the motion picture business was when FATTY ARBUCKLE was convicted.
  • Boo GINGERB... 2011/12/13 16:13:52
    No, it was Roman Polanski.
  • GINGERB... Boo 2011/12/13 16:24:27
    But he never spent time in jail. Fatty Arbuckle did. Every body in Hollyweird is on Polanski's side. When Fatty Arbuckle was convicted, he spent a whole lot of time in jail. Polanski is still enjoying his freedom, and living high off the hog.
  • Boo GINGERB... 2011/12/13 17:23:07
    He only avoided jail by fleeing the country. That is why he ran! But it was the biggest "Hollywood scandal" I can remember!
  • GINGERB... Boo 2011/12/13 17:47:03
    Now that they law is trying to bring him back, Who are his defenders? Yep, you said it, the Hollywood crowd. So you still think it's a scandal? These people are laughing behind our backs, that's how much of scandal it is.
  • Boo GINGERB... 2011/12/13 19:03:06
    The media covered his arrest and trial, and interviewed the girl's mother. They covered the story.
  • GINGERB... Boo 2011/12/13 22:32:35
    But nothing was done to him. He is considered a HERO in most artistic circles. You know it I know it. He will never spend a minute in a US jail.
  • Boo GINGERB... 2011/12/14 17:43:06
    He fled U.S. jurisdiction. What do you expect anyone to do?? Because he is one of the Hollywood elite with plenty of money, he was able to escape our justice system. That isn't the fault of our system. He is considered a hero by those in the film industry--hardly mainstream America!! They are in the 1% that is the problem. No one else idolizes him.
  • GINGERB... Boo 2011/12/14 17:50:49
    But every body threw FATTY ARBUCKLE under the bus, including the HOLLYWOOD types
  • Boo GINGERB... 2011/12/14 17:56:08
    Fatty Arbuckle was prosecuted in the early part of the 20th century, when we were barely out of the Victorian Era! Roman Polanski was prosecuted in the 1960s. Big big difference there, not only in our judicial system, but more so in our society.
  • GINGERB... Boo 2011/12/14 17:59:55
    Why are we making excuses for these people/ Would you agree that what they are doing is WRONG! Maybe we need a little more VICTORIAN attitude sometimes.
  • Boo GINGERB... 2011/12/14 18:10:12
    I am not making any excuses for it, I'm just stating the facts as to why! I personally do not want to go back to Victorian America. One can have personal morals and beliefs, but under our Constitution we do not have the right to impose them on others. When a crime is committed, it is up to the justice/court system to bring them to justice. The fact that Polanski was able to flee the country and avoid justice is sad, but frankly, people with a lot of money who could post the huge bond he had to pay at any period in history could have done the same. The only fault you can place on our system is the fact that he was allowed to post bond, and thereby able to leave the country.

    With the information presented, it is impossible to do anything but offer conjecture about the "why", Are they aware? Almost certainly, to be otherwise they would have to be asleep. It seems odd to me that, if they are ignoring anything, what would be the purpose? They cannot think because they choose not to follow this story that others will not. The course of action for them should be to cover the story, even from a different perspective, as this would sell papers/time/etc.. The conclusion I come to is that there is no good reason for them to NOT report the story but then again, that is conjecture on my part.
